Hestia's...addiction (not Facebook)
The sort of miserable that only a packet of Kitkats can soothe.
And it has been dreich for DAYS.
This is why I woke up this morning to find my tummy resting on the mattress next to me, like a newly-born puppy.
If it HAD been a newly-born puppy, I would have given it a cuddle or at least an affectionate pat and named it Archie. But since it was my tummy, I gave it an irritated slap and threw myself onto my back to make it 'disappear'.
I ran my hand over my tummy. Once upon a time I could do this and my palm slipped from one hip bone to the other, dipping slightly into a little valley that lay between my hips. Concave it was. Once.
When I did it this morning, my hip bones were still there, but some bastard had come along and built a wobbly hillock in my valley. Convex it is. Now.
I am slowly killing myself with Tunnocks Caramel Wafers, I thought angrily. This has got to stop.
So, for breakfast I had a bowl of porridge and allowed myself a virtuous smirk. Sure, there was about 20g of salt in it (come on, you've got to give the stuff SOME flavour)
BUT. Then I was dispatched to the supermarket.
Which was a mistake.
I came home with everything on my list...
...Plus a packet of Mars Bars cakes
....and two fresh cream and jam slices.
Eagerly I filled the kettle and made ready two mugs of instant coffee. Tartarus was out in the garage painting a bit of wood (I'll explain later) and said that he would be in shortly.
Reader, by the time he had come in for his coffee, I had eaten my fresh cream and jam slice. And THREE shortbread fingers.
I am completely ashamed of myself. Even Tartarus comments on the missing cake and shorty. And you know how observant HE is.
I'm a sugar junkie
Any hints or tips to get myself clean?!

Everything was going pretty well until we started the brief drive back from Edinburgh Zoo to Leith docks, where we are currently residing. ...
